The Hip Hinge is a vital skill to learn not only in everyday life but even more so to enhance your performance if you're looking to progress in the gym or in your chosen sport.
The movement requires us to hinge (or bend) from the hips, keeping a neutral trunk, instead of rounding through the back.
Make sure you can do this before attempting any type of deadlift.
Remember, it is a skill that will take time to master. You're learning a new motor pattern and your central nervous system has to get used to the feeling of this movement before it becomes automatic so if you feel uncoordinated at first that's completely normal!
Start with 2 sets of 12 reps. If you are already an experienced lifter you can add this in between deadlifting sets to ensure you're creating the right shape in your lifts. Try 3-5 sets of 8 reps.
If you need any extra help, book in with one of our Osteopath's or Strength & Conditioning Coaches.
